, hearing none, item no. 7. >> the clerk: item 7. action item reconciliation of kaiser medicare rate. >> good afternoon, neale kosher. nice to see everyone again. i'm going to walk you through the document labeled kaiser medicare rate final rate for 2014. when we met on june 13th of this year, we stated that the medicare advantage rates for kaiser were preliminary, that we needed to get additional information brought to kaiser. they cooked the final rates and they would let you know at that time. as soon as we knew what they were and then we can talk about how we decide what to do whether they would have to be higher, the rates or lower. we always hope because of the timing and everything comes in better and there is money to be appropriated in some fashion for the cost of the rates. we finalized everything in the system. that is done to be clear on that part. so what happened was kaiser did their magic and got their final numbers and our number we posted at the 14th of june was $346.45. the final number is $344. that saves the city $2.8 million. which is a very good thing. they do

at historical democratic reports from kaiser and i think i attached late, but it was an attachment and that was waiting for you when you arrived on the demographic reports. these demographic reports came to the same conclusion that the kaiser foundation had trended. >> someone's cellphone is going off. >> sorry, the kaiser membership has trended younger over time. and so i think we are all on the same page. they are now with that in terms of it being a factor that has been included in our renewal and is clear that although the kaiser membership has grown and grown in all areas of young and old membership that over all the age has improved. we have a younger population than we've had in 2009. we also talked quite a bit about the risk study. one of the funding proposals we are considering is risk premiums and an agreement on how to do the risk study to determine the risk of the population. we have agreed on a medical and pharmacy all claim data based risk study that has been initiated and we have the goal of completing that by february of 2014 for the board's review in march and if

the health -- the health commission as well. as we were discussing kaiser rates and it's great that kaiser is here, it was some question that the care management and other issues were protected and could not be revealed because of trade secrets but i'm wondering on different data like that, would you consider that a trade secret? >> explain to me the data again. what is it? >> so as we were discussing kaiser's rates, there were different issues that i believe kaiser rep said they didn't give and we did receive information from kaiser later, and it's basically -- i think it was called integrated care management and many people were talking about how the rates were going up and kaiser was saying that's trade secrets, i believe. >> i think what i'm mostly here to say is you can claim something is protected by as trade secret, but the only way you find out is if anyone information constitutes a trade secret is try it in court. there are -- it's something that's fact specific and so it's jurisdiction and fact specific, so depending on all the ends and outs of this and how they've used it in th
a great price and kaiser has a unique model which many people love. there are many that members particularly love. there is where you can do less of this because we arbitrarily decided it needs to be an x personal of the rate which is not the way we should go. we should look at the overall rate. i want you to look at what's been reported already by all hospitals and hospital acquired infections are publically reported by all hospitals. >> is there a particular site for that? >> yeah. i'm not sure whether it's federal or state website. i don't really go look at them. they are just reports. >> i believe it's the website. i heard they are limiting that website. we may ask the board of supervisors to put pressure on the state because the public scrutiny of that data is really important. we'll get back to you on that. >> any other comments? public comment? seeing none, all right. item no. 9. >> the clerk: discussion item question the blue shield's calculation. >> lisa gut be. i'm going to accept set up the questions. one of our unions is looking at the rates and benefits process
have accepted that contribution model. if we are going to ri main competitive, and kaiser competitive, the unions must accept the contribution models. >> any other comment? any public comment? item 10: dashboard. >> an an alytic managers system. the dashboard system today is a series of on going support of various health plans. today we'll look at our city plan through 2013. we'll be looking at the merging cost and auto utilization for our active and retirees. the majority of the participating city plan are in the retirement program. the numbers look very good for this group of folks. in contrast, the membership has decrease in our active early retiree pools and those that have either catastrophic illness and those with no other options live outside of the blue shield or kaiser service areas. so, what we've done with this particular dashboard is really conducted a deep dive in our areas of concern. so to that end we are not looking at necessity depth of our retirees. our areas will look at the areas of concern in the active city plan as well as our early retiree. in the report con
to have comment -- public comment in a minute. at this point i'll ask kaiser to come up and thank you for being here and for your continuing to work with the city of san francisco in our service system. >> thank you very much farrel and mar. it's a privilege to be here. we're here to today to lend our support and to affirm our commitment to quality transparency and to price transparency. i am -- i'm the manager here in san francisco for kaiser foundation hospital and health plan and i'm accountable for the care delivered to a little of over $192,000 people. 3,000 healthy san francisco 192,000 people. 3,000 healthy san francisco healthy participant and $3,000 health members and for kaiser california we serve 55,000 city and county employees and a little over 2,000 in san francisco. we value our partner and our relationship with the city and county. and we look forward to collaborating on this effort. for many years, kaiser has been involved in sharing successful clinical practices, quality transparency. we know that by doing that, we get the best clinical outcomes for our patien
the 1914 kaiser reich as a -- military whose victory would have been a disaster. i suggest that western civilization has as much reason to be grateful that the german amibitions were frustrated, despite the appalling cost and even if the outcome of the first clash proved to have a tragic impermanentance because germany fought all over again a generation later, under hitler. i won't detail events in the summer of 1914 but offer a quick proceed. on the 2nd of june, ferdinand, heir to the hungarian throne, was shot dead by a terrorist. the men in charge of austria felt no special sorrow for prince ferdinand. they say in the outrage an ideal pretext for settling accounts with serbia, a cronk cohn -- some army officers provided the weapons and perhaps also the elm tuesday for the assassination plot, although personally i think it's unlikely the belgrade government was involved. one aspect of 1914 seems to our generation incomprehensible. most european nations regarded war not as the supreme horror but as a usable instrument of politics. many interpretations of how the conflict came about are
plans, you will notice that blue shield is at 169 and kaiser 185. so what does that mean? if you would set uhs is the baseline, you would find if they would make blue shield the baseline, you would expect them to be about 300 admits and kaiser about 280. they exceeded even if they are one. they are above and beyond what you would predict for utilization. now as far as the average, as you remember, uhs is a length of time of average length of stachlt -- stay. it's 6.5. it far exceeds the norm for northern california, in the sense that it's usually expected to see it under 5. we did want to point out but just in passing because we don't know the amen of the maternity for individuals. this was surprising the age is 48 so you would expect higher risk pregnancies which means longer days of stay. we don't know the age of the people that had the babies. we can't say much. again, looking at heche which is what you would expect having admits in 3 of the four last quarters. their average stay is under one day.1 day. moving on to page 9, what is the total cost per day. it's 42 percent per year.
of the best german ones see the 1914 kaiser reich as a militarized autocracy his victory would have been a disaster. i suggest that western civilization, almost as much reason to be grateful that the german ambitions were for stated in 1918 as in 1945 despite the appalling cost can even if the outcome of the first clash proved how the tragic impermanence because germany is time under hitler got to the fourth all over again a generation later. i will not tonight detailed events of the summer of 1914, but i will offer a quick prayer. the archduke franz ferdinand, wrote to the austria--ton variant thereof was shot dead by a young hostage -- austrian-serb terrorists. no special sorrow for funds for an animated slight, but what they saw in the average, an ideal pretext for settling accounts with serbia, a politically troublesome little neighbor whose leaders in cited their own minorities to results. some serbian army officers and provided the weapons and households for the emperors of the assassination, although personally and think it is unlikely that the belgrade government was involved. on
. >> i got stitched up many times at kaiser hospital. my son was born there. >> thank you for being here. >> excuse me. thank you, sir. we'll have public comment in a minute. i want to thank anyone who did come. those speakers, i think, we'll have concluding comments, but we'll open up to public comment. everyone will have two minutes. i have a few speaker cards and there's more. larry brad shau and brook. please, anyone want to speak in public comment and everyone will have two minutes to speak. >> is this working? >> sir, sir, the podium will work, go ahead. >> this is -- [inaudible]. stand still is a body. stop it at a good point where it needs to be stem too. [inaudible]. laws and competitions and unless there's market making and market up and down and competitions. point number two, price structure. difficulties allies for price paid for construction. third point, the way and rules for spending in terms of choices. all mutual benefits [inaudible]. one day of opening or one day of closing. one day of promoting and one way of cutting short. one day of live and one day of ki
mixes of -- if something cost more and we've talked with kaiser and i'm sure will address the integrated cost management that they plague in their services and i spoke with them and i appreciate them to talk about what happened this summer, allocate that to the cost of a knee replacement. it should be fair to get services that you provide that affect the cost of a knee replacement. it's not just the knee replacement, but it's the nurses that take care of you and the followup care. what's fair is fair, but i imagine that doesn't seem to me that cuts across saying, we should be able to -- we should share that information so people can have choices. >> i think you make good points. i want to go back to the point you made about medicaid and medicare. all hospitals have that same issue but they don't have all the same share. you can have pockets in your city where there's vulnerable populations or elderly population where the hospital has a share of the care and that is the overall expenses. >> what i really worry about is that people have the lower cost or the lower share of the med-cal
resolving some of these issues. president mar. >> as we were discussing the kaiser services going on. we brought it to the board level for further discussion and this was some revelation of that data, but kaiser systems wasn't divulgeable because of a gag on ready or a trade system that was being disclosed. it could go from the patients to the health board to the board of supervisors, where do you think is the protected information where people could understand it and it doesn't seem to be protected as a trade secret? >> i think there's different levels of where you can offer that disclosure. certainly in the kaiser instance, at the level at the board of supervisors and hsf in making decisions about what kind of carrier purchasing accident i think transparency is great to help you decide how much you're going to pay. there's ordinances that i have to make sure to insure that the board of supervisors can see that. it's important to realize that there's different claims. something protected by a contract clause that's separate from the trade secret argument. if you're bound by a non dis
: kaiser's inpatient pediatric facility here in hayward closed at mh means chile near here who need to be hospitalized must now go to oakland. the transition was said to be smooth. there were no patients at the facilities so no patients needed to be transferred. the facility averaged four children a day. kaiser said closing the hayward unit will offer a higher level of care. the 21 of the 22 nurses that worked here had been re-assigned, one retired. many of them are still upset about the closure. they say they're concerned about the patients who live near here. >> these people are going to be evaluated in the emergency room. they're going to be too sick at that time and try to stabilize them, and then they have to try transporting them to a facility that has pediatric care. that could take from ten two to six to eight hours. >> we recognize the change in location and we know families want the best for their children, and the best care for children is to be treated in a pediatric specialty center such as kaiser oakland, and this is supported by clinicianses at the children's hospital
and the system has not been set up to provide this information. >> can i ask you aside from and i think kaiser is different, but in models like this, are you seeing this trend, the red shading across all plans? >> good question. i actually printed out 20 of these and gave it to my class and analyzed them. all of them had a cost like this. it's the individual market and not the employed market but if you had to guess, i'm going to guess that this model is going to creep into the employer market and so we're going to see within a couple of years a lot of red lines on coverage for employees provided by their employer. there's a reason for this. this lowers premium. all these red things lower premiums because people useless services when they have to pay. the red expertment shows that. if the user is paying the health plan doesn't have to. we're going to see more of these in employer based plans because the employer based plans are paying for those rising prices that i showed you earlier and that really is the elephant in the room. the under lined prices in health care are going up and insur
production in 195, they cleared the plant out and in 1947 it was purchased by the kaiser fraser company. they used the plant both for their automobiles. roughly 800,000 automobiles here. kaiser frasers, henry gray. as i said, about 8,000 automobiles were built. also most people win of the b-24 bomber plant and the b-24s that were built here. very few people know we had c-119 flying boxcars built here. roughly 200 were built in the early 1950s. after kaiser fraser was done with the automobiles and their aircraft production, general motors bought the plant. they lost one of their transmission facilities to a fire and they saw this plant. it was empty at the time they purchased it. ever since then until 2010 when it became vacant after the general motors bankruptcy. right now if you look inside the facility there is not much in there. there is a lot of the manufacturing equipment left from general motors on the floor that's slowly being cleared out. once it is cleared out and the power is restored to it again, you can see that it looks just like it did in 1942. this end of the building was
